Sump Coffee- Saint Louis, Missouri
I find myself at Sump Coffee more and more since I've moved. Since I walk or take the bus everywhere, this is the closest and coincidentally one of the best coffee shops in the city for me to get to on a regular basis.
The staff is always friendly and the shop has a relaxed vibe with great branding. Namely, skull motifs with the owner's signature beard on the walls and merch.
This photo is from back in October but I wanted to highlight their creative drinks with this activated charcoal latte. It was an unusual taste but warmed my gothy heart with it's dark gray color. If you're stopping in St. Louis for a short amount of time, this is my number one recommended stop.
